No. 2. 


On June 23 we shall have a goodly 
number of graduates to be added to 
our alumni roll. We rejoice that these 
young people have arrived at their 
commencement and shall have reach- 
ed the period of life in which they 
can show more loyalty to Ohio Uni- 
versity than ever before. We know 
that due appreciation of their educa- 
tional advantages at O. U. which they 
have enjoyed during the last four 
\ years, will increase constantly. We 
wish to emphasize the fact that their 
influence for their Alma Mater is just 
beginning. We hope that each grad- 
uate will be so successful in his busi- 
ness or profession that he may be a 
living advertisement of the institution 
in which he was prepared to enter up- 
on the duties of life. 

Let each graduate take advantage 
of every opportunity to direct desir- 
able students to Ohio University. In 
these times of increased agitation for 
preparedness, what more patriotic 
deeds could be accomplished by all 
who do not take up arms, or labor in 
some other field of military service, 
than to assist in developing future in- 
tellectual, physical, moral, and spirit- 
ual leaders? In the future, more than 
ever before the world will have need 
of wise, efficient, and powerful leader- 
ship. "The law of war is the survival 
of the unfittest." Then it is evident 
that development of the fittest surviv- 
ors must follow after the war if we 
are to increase efficient citizenship. 

No institution is better suited to de- 
velop efficient citizens than Ohio Uni- 
versity. Let all the alumni of 1917 tell 
their friends this truth wherever they 
may go. Tell them about the moral 
advantages of O. U. because Athens is 
removed from the temptations of the 
larger cities. Spread the news of the 
instructive efficiency and high ideals 
of the teachers. Emphasize the ad- 
ministrative ability in the manage- 
ment of the institution, the altruism 
and public spirit of the people and stu- 
dent body in general. 

We have attempted to write a word 
of introduction about every graduate 
of a four-year course. We have taken 
the names as they are found in the 
Athena. If there are any seniors 
whose names are not in the annual we 

are sorry that we have missed them. 
■We regret that we have not space to 
recognize all other graduates for we 
realize that many of the most loyal 
supporters of Ohio University are 
found among the graduates of the 
shorter courses. We are grateful to 
all the seniors for their assistance in 
taking time and trouble to answer our 
inquiry. We wish to invite them also 
to make a contribution of a dollar or 
more to the Alumni Fund. We must 
urge all our friends to be as liberal as 
possible, for this is the only means 
which we have of doing this kind of 
work for the university. Mr. C. G. 
O'Bleness, the treasurer of the Alum- 
ni Association will receive the contri- 
butions. We wish, too, that all might 
realize the importance of notifying us 
at once of any change in address, and 
that we might always have the degree 
and year of graduation following the 
name. Help us in these matters and 
we will be grateful indeed. 


The following is a brief explanation 
of some of the later organizations in 
the student body: 

Torch is an honorary Junior-Senior 
organization. It was founded to rec- 
ognize accomplishments and honors of 
versatile men at Ohio. It is generally 
conceded that a man must be more 
than an average student to gain ad- 
mission. Professor Mackinnon is the 
faculty member and adviser. 

Tau Kappa Alpha is a chapter of the 
national honorary debating and ora- 
torical fraternity. This chapter was 
installed June, 1916. 

Cresset is an honorary organization 
for girls. It was established at O. U. 
in 1913. The number is limited ^to 
fourteen. Each spring, members are 
elected with great care, to fill vacan- 
cies made by outgoing seniors. Eligi- 
bility is based upon scholarship and 
college activities. 

The Senate,' a literary organization 
for men was organized in 1915. Mem- 
bers attempt to do more advanced 
work than the other literary societies 
and strict parliamentary rules govern 
the work. Freshment are not admitted 
to active membership and only seniors 
can hold office. 

Oyo, girl's literary honorary society 

was established in 1914 by members of 
the Cresset and a few others whom 
they invited. The organization in- 
cludes all women students of the uni- 
versity who by superior work prove 
themselves eligible. 

Alphi Phi Chi is an honorary liter- 
ary society for men. It was organized 
in 1915. Its purpose is to give young 
men more training in literary work. 
It is supervised by Dr. H. R. Wilson. 

Advisory Board of AVoman's League 
was instituted in 1913 under Dean Ir- 
ma E. Voigt's supervision. Its pur- 
pose is to foster a "big sister" attitude 
of the upper class girls to those of the 
lower classes. 

Dean Richeson supervises the B. S. 
in Ed. Club. All seniors of the four- 
year normal course are members. It 
affords better advantages for students 
to practical discussions by prominent 
men. P. P. Claxton addressed the 
club last October. 

Debate Council of Women was or- 
ganized in 1915 by the Department of 
Public Speaking. Every woman in the 
university is eligible to membership. 
The purpose of the Council is to in- 
crease efficiency in debate and ora-

Arthur Charles Johnson, Sr., was 
born in Ira, Summit County, Ohio, on 
October 10, 1875. His aunt, Miss Kate 
Cranz, was the teacher in a nearby 
country school, and at the age of 4% 
years he ran away to her school room 
and attended regularly from that time 
until he was ready for High School. 
In 1891 he was graduated from the 
Wadsworth High School, and in the 
Fall of that year he entered Ohio 
University at Athens. At this time 
his aunt Kate Cranz was Professor of 
German and French in this institu- 

An orphan, and possessed of no 
private means, Mr. Johnson was com- 
pelled to earn his way thru college. 
This he did in divers and sundry ways, 
among them teaching, farming, as a 
stone mason assistant, and running 
a threshing machine. 

In 1892-93, when just 17 years old, 
he taught a district school in Summit 
county. In September, 1893, he re- 
turned to Ohio University, but left 
with a severe attack of typhoid fever 
and after his recvoery entered Buchtel 

College in Akron, from hlch institu- 
tion he was graduated. 

Mr. Johnson w-as a member of the 
class of 1898, but in that Spring he 
entered the Army, went to Cuba and 
served during the Spanish-American 
War as a Sergeant Major in the Eighth 

In 1900 he received his Bachelor's 
Degree from Buchtel. 

After leaving the army Mr. Johnson 
went on the staff of the Akron Beacon 
Journal, eventually becoming the city 
editor. In 1901 he went to the Wash- 
ington Post, where he did city and 
desk work for one year. 

In 1902 he returned to Ohio to be- 
come City Editor of the Columbus 
Evening Dispatch, and since 1911 he 
has been Managing Editor of that 

Mr. Johnson was married on Dec. 
31st, 1902, to Miss Grace Reah, of 
Athens. Miss Reah was a student of 
Ohio University and of Goucher 
College, Baltimore, being graduated 
from Goucher College as a Bachelor 
of Arts and receiving a degree of 
Master of Arts from Ohio Univer- 
sity in 1900, after a year of post- 

graduate study and teaching in this 
latter college. 

Mr. and Mrs. Johnson have two 
sons, Derrol Reah, born March 31, 
1904, and Arthur Chas., Jr., born July 
4th, 1905. They live at 725 Franklin 
Ave., in Columbus. 


Mr. T. J. Davis, who was confirmed 
by the last Legislature as a Trustee 
of the Ohio University at Athens, is a 
Virginian by birth, and a graduate of 
Bethany College, at Bethany, West 

Mr. Davis located in the banking 
business in the eastern part of 
Kentucky, and assisted in the organi- 
zation of several banking institutions 
in that section, now the leading insti- 
tutions of their localities. Mr. Davis 
came to Cincinnati as assistant 
cashier of the Fifth National Bank in 
1892, was later made Cashier, and in 
190.\ became Cashier of the First 
National Bank, and later a Vice-Presi- 
dent of the same institution. The 
First National Bank of Cincinnati is 
the largest banking institution in the 



state of Ohio in point of banking capi- 
tal and surplus. 

Mr. Davis is one of the most in- 
fluential men in Cincinnati, and is con- 
sidered high in hanking circles all 
over the country. He is most 
thtroughly interested in his family and 
the better welfare of his friends. He 
stands very high in the esteem of all 
who know him. He has no bad 
habits, has no use for tobacco, and is 
an excellent type of Southern man- 
hood. Because of his interest in the 
spiritual, intellectual and moral ad- 
vancement of young people, his busi- 
ness efficeincy should make him an ex- 
cellent trustee and Ohio University is 
fortunate indeed in procuring his as- 


Margaret Bo'yd, generally known 
and spoken of thruout her life as 
Maggie Boyd, was born April 7, 1845; 
entered the Ohio University as a stu- 
dent April 1, 1S68; graduated with the 
degree of Bachelor of Arts, June 26, 
1873; taught in the High School at 
Monroeville, Ohio, 1873-75; in the 
Cincinnati Wesleyan College for 
Women, 1875-79; in the High School 
at Martinsville, Indiana, 1880-1884; in 
the High School of Athens, Ohio, as 
Assistant Principal, her sister Kate 
being Principal, 1884-98; died October 
10, 1905. 

This brief epitome of her life, 
studies, and labors, is enough to give 
evidence of her fine intelligence, her 
high ambitions, and patient industry. 
But much more than this is demanded 
to make her record occupy the place 
it is entitled to in the annals of her 
Alma Mater. 

Maggie was of pure Scotch-Irish 
descent. Her father's name was 
Daniel Boyd. He kept a careful 
family record, a copy of which I have 
at hand and some parts of which have 
an appropriate place in this memorial 
of his youngest daughter. 

His paternal grandfather's name 
"was Albert Boyd, of whose life no par- 
ticulars are known. But a son of 
Albert, named Robert 'Boyd, married 
Jane Ramsay in Ireland, came perhaps 
in middle life to Amreica, and died 
in Coshocton County, Ohio. 

Of the eight children of Robert and 
Jane Ramsay, whose descendants are 
very numerous and are found in many 
parts of the United States. Daniel 
Boyd, Maggie's father, was the 
second. He was born in the parish 
of Killibegs. town of Ardara, County 
of Donegal, in North Ifeland, Sept. 
7, 1794. Ho came to America in 
1819. In Holmes County, Ohio, he 
was married in 1825 to Jane Elliott. 

He came to Carthage Township, Ath- 
ens County, in 1839, where his chil- 
dren grew up and where he died Aug. 
20, 1867. Soon after his death, his 
farm was sold, and his widow and 
children removed to the home on 
North Congress Street in Athens, 
known as the Boyd House. This was 
the home of the family for nearly half 
a century. 

Here is, the place to introduce 
Maggie's mother, Jane Elliott, and 
some account of the most excellent 
family to which she belonged. 

The Elliotts, like the Boyds, were 
North Ireland people. It is my un- 
derstanding that the progenitors of 
both families came into Ireland from 
Scotland. The Ireland home of the 
Elliotts was in County Londonderry. 

Jane Elliott was the daughter of 
John and Fanny Blaine Elliott, the I 
eleventh of their fifteen children. At 
the age of fifty, the father died in 
Ireland. Later the widow came to 
Holmes County, Ohio. Whether all 
of the children came to this country, 
I do not know. Part of them, at 
least did. and two of these were active 
and prominent in the work of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church in 
America. The Rev. Simon Elliott 
was at the time of his death Presid- 
ing Elder of the Wellsburg District in 
the Pittsburg Conference. Rev. 
Charles Elliott, D. D., was so promi- 
nent and influential that a somewhat 
extended account of him can not with 
propriety be omitted. 

He was born in Ireland in 1792 and 
died in Iowa in 1869. He was edu- 
cated at Dublin and came to America 
in 1814. "In 1822 he labored as su- 
perintendent of the Wyandotte Mis- 
sion, Upper Sandusky, and for five 
years was Presiding Elder of the 
Ohio District. From 1827 to 1831 he 
was professor of languages in Madi- 
son College, Uniontown, Pa., and sub- 
sequently he edited the Pittsburg Con- 
ference Journal and the Westren 
Christian Advocate. After 1848 he 
returned to his ministerial duties, but 
in 1852 was again appointed editor of 
the Advocate. He wrote A Treatise 
on Baptism (1834), History of the 
Great Secession from the IVI. E. 
Church (1855), Reminiscences of The. 
Wyandotte Mission (1868), and a 
History of the M. E. Church in the 
South and West, 1844-1866 (1868.)" 

The foregoing quotation is from | 
Funk & Wagvalls Standard Encyclo- , 
pedia. It omits one important liter- 
ary work of Dr. Elliott, a volume on 
Slavery. A copy of this work is in 
the Library of my oldest son, Charles 
Elliott Davis, having ^ been pre.sented 
to him by the late Rev. Mordecai D. 
Vaughn, who knew Dr. Elliott well. 
He was one of the ablest and most 

vigorous opponents of slavery in our 
country. He made the Western 
Christian Advocate one of the only 
two religious papers in the entire 
North that were distinctly and un- 
flinchingly anti-slavery. The other 
was The Morning Star, denominational 
organ of the Freewill Baptists, then 
published at Dover, N. H. In 1875 I 
became acquainted with Rev. Thcraias 
Harrison, D. D., formerly President of 
Moore's Hill College, Ind., assistant 
editor of the Advocate while Dr. 
Elliott was Editor-in-Chief. Dr. Har- 
rison told me that once a week when 
he brought the religious exchanges in- 
to the office of the Advocate, Dr. 
Elliott would say, "Brother Harrison, 
hand me The Morning Star. Let me 
comfort and strengthen my heart by 
reading the only religious paper that 
has tlie principle and the courage to 
stand by us in this terrible conflict." 

Dr. Elliott was very active in the 
work of the M. E. Church in Ohio. 
He helped locate and establish the O. 
W. U. at Delaware. The proud love 
of the Boyd children for this uncle 
was one of the formative influences 
in Maggie's young life. 

Six of the nine Boyd children were 
born in Coshocton County. Fletcher, 
Fannie, and Maggie were born after 
the removal to the farm home in 
Athens County. The oldest sbn was 
a half-grown boy at the time of this 
removal; the youngest daughter was 
a grown woman at the time of the 
removal from the farm to the town of 

What fruitful years were the twenty- 
eight from 1839 to 1867, for the sons 
and daughters of this family. The 
common schools and the neighboring 
academy at Coolville gave to them a 
solid education and all of them but 
Maggie became teachers upon the 
basis of this education. The oldest 
son became a graduate of Starling 
Medical College, and the other two 
sons graduates of Ohio LTniver- 

The oldest son. Dr. John Elliott 
Boyd, married Miss Caroline Carr of 
Wilkesville, Ohio, practiced medicine 
two years, first at Hockingport, Ohio, 
and later at West Columbia, Va. He 
died of typhoid fever in May, 1855. 
His only child, Jane Elliott Boyd, 
commonly called Ella Boyd, was the 
second woman to become a student 
and a graduate of O. U. On the day 
of her graduation, June 22, 1876, she 
was married to John M. Davis, class 
of '73. She has one daughter and 
three sons, all graduates of Rio 
Grande College, four grand-daughters 
and two grandsons. The daughter, 
Carrie S. Davis, died October IS, 1915. 

Mary Ann Boyd, the second child, 
died in 1867, a few days after the 


death of her father. She was 39 
years old at the time of her death. 
She taught many terms in Coshocton 
County and aided her brother John in 
gaining his medical education. 

Jane Boyd was born in 1831, taught 
many years, during her later years 
was at the head of the Boyd House in 
Athens, where she died ih 1885. A 
lady who, as a student of the Ohio 
University, knew her well in those 
days, has thus written regarding her: 
"When I first came to Athens, the 
gentle mother was slowly fading out 
of life, and Miss Jane Boyd was the 
housekeeper. It was the delight of 
the College girls to spend part of 
Saturday afternoons at Boyds', and I 
am sure the influance of that happy 
home life and the earnest friendly 
counsel has had much to do with the 
success of other homes. I am glad 
to pay my own grateful tribute to what 
it meant to me, a young college girl, 
away from home and friends. Miss 
Jane was always so interested in 
young people's efforts, so sympathetic, 
so helpful, so inspiring, that the stu- 
dents who shared her home owe much 
to her influence. She gave herself 
freely, devotedly to her home and 
family, but the fullness of her nature 
overflowed generously to all the help- 
ful activities of the town. Many a 
poor family were blest by a call from 
Miss Jane and her well filled basket." 

"She was a member of the noble 
band of women in Athens, called the 
Crusaders. The present saloonless 
condition of Athens is due to many 
causes, and the faithful persistent ef- 
forts of many people; but the ball was 
started rolling by a little band of 
quiet, home-loving women back in 1873 
on their knees in the saloon." 

"Catherine, or as we all knew her, 
Kate Boyd, was born .at Keene, Cos- 
hocton County, Ohio, May 22, 1833, and 
died at the home of her nephew, 
Perley Boyd Lawrence in Athens, 
Ohio, March 6, 1913. Her education 
was received in the public schools 
and in the Coolville Seminary, which 
she and her sisters attended. On thfs 
foundation she built a broad and 
liberal scholarship by means of ex- 
tended reading, travel, and observa- 
tion. She taught when quite young 
and there is a record of her having 
been granted a two years' certificate 
(the highest then granted to any- 
body) when she was but nineteen. In 
1871 Judge Calvary Morris appointed 
her as member of the Board of School 
Examiners with Major J. M. Good- 
speed, and Mr. J. P. Weethee. Such 
a thing as a woman on the Board was 
unknown anywhere in the State at 
that time and" at the expiration of her 
two years' term the question of "the 
legality of a woman's so serving arose 

and she refused reappointment, al-' 
though her service had been most 
acceptable. She taught at Mansfield 
and various places, but it was in 1876 
when she was elected Principal of the 
Athens High School that her real life 
work began. 

"For twenty-three years she trained 
the minds and moulded the characters 
of Athens' young people as they 
came under her care, and her strong 
personality impressed itself upon Ath- 
ens life in this manner. 

"Ah, there was many a lesson more 
important and more lasting than 
Geometry or Latin taught up there in 
the old High School Building in those 
years when 'the Boyd Girls' were the 
Faculty." (E. W.) 

In addition to the foregoing state- 
ments, it is to be noted that Kate had 
formerly taught four years in the 
Athens High School and one year in 
the Portsmouth High School, and one 
year in Mansfield, before becoming 
Principal at Athens. 

The fifth child in this family was 
Rev. Hugh Boyd, D. D., a graduate 
of Ohio University, class of 1859, 
for many years an active minister, 
and then for more than a third of a 
century Professor of Latin in Cornell 
College, Mount Vernon, Iowa. He 
was at one time offered the Presi- 
dency of Ohio University, but de- 
clined. Several years ago he re- 
ceived a Carnegie ritiring allowance, 
ceased teaching, and spent a quiet and 
honored old age in his Iowa home, 
where he died March 6, 1917. He 
was born Aug. 6, 1835. 

His first wife was Ida Patterson, of 
Amesville, Ohio. There were two 
children of this marriage, Luella and 
Robert Allen. His second wife was 
Mary Moody, daughter of Granville 
Moody, a distinguished officer in the 
Union Army, an eloquent and widely 
known preacher in the M. E. Church. 
The children by this marriage were a 
son, Granville, now deceased, Mrs. 
j Clifford Burr, and Miss Lucy Boyd. 
i Lucy A. Boyd was born in Coshoc- 
ton County in 1837, and died at the 
Athens home Dec. 30, 1911. She 
thoroughly prepared herself for teach- 
ing and for many years did splendid 
work in that profession. She taught 
for a time in the High School of Jack- 
son, Ohio, her superintendent being 
Moses James Morgan, a classmate of 
Maggie in the class of 1873. Then 
by recommendation of Gen. C. H. 
Grosvenor, she was employed as 
teacher in the Ohio Soldiers' and 
Sailors' Orphans' Home at Xenia, 
Ohio. Her work here was highly sat- 
isfactory. "With her fine arid finely 
poised intellect was joined a warm 
and sympathetic heart. Her service 
to her pupils brought into their lives 

a choice and rich influence. The in- 
creasing feebleness of her sister Jane 
called her back to Athens, and the 
stricken home, and in that sacred' ser- 
vice she spent the remaining years of 
her life. 

"The Boyd courage was tested in 
Miss Lucy in quite another way. Do 
any of you think it takes less courage 
to resign than to attack? How she 
would have loved a broader life, we 
can only guess, how well she was 
fitted for it, we know. But her loved 
ones needed her and to them she 
gave cheerfully the offering of her 
life, 'seeking not her own.' She was 
a most valued member of the Pallas 
Club for many years. The high quality 
of her literary work, her faithfulness 
and conscientiousness, and generous 
appreciation endeared her greatly to 
its members, and the Pallas Club feels . 
itself to have been blessed by her 
presence, by her infiuence, and in- 
spired to greater usefulness by her 

"Suddenly, without vv-arning, the 
call came, and on December 30, 1911,. 
Miss Lucy's passing left Miss Kate 
the last of her sisters." (E. W.) 

I have already written regarding. 
"William Fletcher Boyd and what I 
have written has been printed in 
one of the publications of Ohio 
University. Years ago some one 
said of him, "He was incapable of a 
thought not consistent with abstract 
righteousness, or of conduct not con- 
sistent with the Golden Rule." His 
professional work as a lawyer was 
extended and successful. He had for 
some years a position in the city 
government of Cincinnati in which 
his energy and his high standards of 
duty gave him great influence, and 
brought him high credit. His official 
I work connected with the educational 
and publication interests of his de- 
nomination engrossed much of his 
time and energy for years. In this 
he was highly useful and highly 
prized. During his last years he was 
a trustee of his Alma Mater. 

Fanny Blain Boyd was born in the 
farm in Carthage Township in 1842, 
was married to Charles Wyman Law- 
rence in 1865, and died in Athens in 
1899. She also taught for one term 
in her early womanhood. She had in 
the highest degree all the intellectual 
and spiritual traits of the family. 
Her sympathy with the distressed and 
needy and her qiiiet and liberal help- 
fulness made her a blessing to many. 
Her husband after some years of life 
on the farm removed to Athens and 
established himself in business. They 
took a deep interest in the education 
of their two sons at the old O. U. The 
odlest son graduated in 1892. The 
youngest was a successful student for 



years, but did not complete the 
course. Both reside in Athens. Wes- 
ley Boyd Lawrence, born in 1869, was 
married to Belle Rose in 1897. Perley 
Boyd Lawrence, born in 1871, was 
married in 1893 to Abbie Vernon 
Whipple. Their daughter Grace was 
born in 1899. 

The loving faithfulness of the 
Lawrence men to the needs and in- 
terests of the Boyd sisters can never 
be fully known. Charles W. was their 
brother and Wesley and Perley were 
their sons. In those last years of 
failing strength and growing pain and 
infirmity, not a day passed without 
their oversight and service. With 
the constant co-operation of Fletcher 
as long as his health permitted, 
chiefly by the business activity of 
Wesley after the breakdown of 
Fletcher's health, all the business of 
the sisters was cared for, their affairs 
kept in perfect order, and every want 
anticipated and provided for. When 
Kate was left alone, a cousin, Mrs. 
Angle McCaskey, of Coshocton 
County, cared for her, at first in the 
Boyd House, later in the home of 
Perley Lawrence. In that home, the 
last of the sisters "fell on sleep." 

So much of Maggie's life history has 
been incidentally brought out in the 
history of her family, that I shall go 
at once to her life as a student and a 
graduate of Ohio University. 

She became a student at the opening 
of the Spring term, April 1, 1868. 

The faculty at that time consisted 
of the President, Rev. Solomon 
Howard, D. D., and Professors Eli T. 
Tappan, William Henry Young, Alex- 
ander S. Gibbons, and William Harvey 
Glenn Adney. 

I do not think that any member of 
the faculty had any objection to the 
presence of a lady as a member of the 
student body. There was, however, 
some fear that the public might be 
unfavorably influenced by that fact. 
For this reason her name appeared as 
M. Boyd in the catalog for 1869-69. 
Thereafter it was printed in full, for 
the faculty soon learned that there 
■was a general approval of her 

Of the members of the class of 1873, 
to which she belonged at graduation 
and which contained seven members, 
two, Moses James Morgan, of Oak 
and John Merrill Davis, of Harrison- 
ville, entered college with Maggie. 
Two members, Frank Otis Ballard of 
Athens and Ripley Hoffman Kinnison 
of Dawkin's Mills, had been students 
before. The other two mmebers, 
Evan Jerome Jones of Thurman and 
Charles Herbert Dixon, of Athens, en- 
tered later. 

During the first term of our attend- 
ance, Maggie, Morgan and I, were the 

members of a large class in Latin that 
recited twice daily. Our teacher. Pro- 
fessor Adney, always rose at Maggie's 
entrance, greeted her by name, and 
gave her a chair. Her air and bearing 
were modest and dignified, almost 
painfully marked for a few weeks by 
timidity. But the timidity steadily 
wore off. She had good lessons, re- 
cited in a clear distinct voice, and at 
once secured the respect and admira- 
tion of that class. It was the same 
in other classes and in the Philoma- 
thean Literary Society, to which her 
brothers belonged and which gallantly 
opened its doors to receive her. Her 
place in the appreciation and love of 
the College world steadily grew larger 
to the end of her course. On the 
week of her graduation, she and the 
other members of the class of '73 who 
were Philomatheans, received their 
society diplomas from the hands of 
Hugh Morrison Lash of the class of 
'70. He was a brilliant and forceful 
speaker, and the hall rang with cheers 
at his closing words: "For the first 
time in the history of the Ohio Uni- 
versity, a lady receives a diploma, 
and that a Philo diploma," 

For two years hers was the only 
lady's name in the college catalog. In 
the catalog of '69 and '70, there appear 
in addition the names of Mary Vir- 
ginia Gibbons, daughter of Prof. Gib- 
bons, and Pella Almira Creighton, 
daughter of the Rev. Joseph Creighton. 
Next year Maggie and Miss Gibbons 
were alone. But in the catalog of '71 
and '72, in addition to Maggie were 
Mary Virginia Gibbons, Mary Kate 
Hoyt, Sarah Tucker, Ella Boyd, Julia 
Harris, Eva Arnold, Ella Clarissa 
Radford, Emma Jane Radford, and H. 
Mary Wilson. In the year of Mag- 
gie's graduation, the other lady stu- 
dents were Ella Boyd, Hester Ellen 
Boyd, Mary Ames de Steiguer, Hattie 
S. Guthrie, Sarah Jane Michael, and 
the two Radford sisters. 

A tribute to her spirit and work as 
a student, so discriminating and true, 
has been paid by a lady who knew her 
well, that I enrich this article by quot- 
ing the following sentences: 

"Margaret it was, as you all know, 
who opened the doors of Ohio 
University for women students — but 
what a feat it was, in what a brave 
womanly way it was done, none of us 
can quite realize. Agitation there 
had been, plenty of it; fulmination; 
angry demand; noisy argument — all 
in vain. 

"But this gentle woman, believing 
that she had as good a right to a 
higher education at the hands of the 
State as had her brothers, believed 
moreover that if she claimed her 
right she would not be refused — so 
one day she quietly requested that she 

might be allowed to attend the recita- 
tions and share the privileges of the 
classes. Leave was granted to make 
the experiment, and day after day 'M. 
Boyd,' as she appeared in the catalog, 
went her lonely way, the only woman 
in a college full of men. What 
courage it took you may guess. Those 
of you who know what a sensitive 
flower of woman she was, can but 
marvel, as I always did, at the brave 
spirit that dared even while it suffer- 
ed. For herself alone, ardently as 
she desired knowledge, she could 
never have so defied precedent, but 
for the sake of the women to come af- 
ter and all It would mean to them, she 
kept on her way, serene, dignified, vic- 
torious through sheer force of charac- 
ter, and we who come after her can 
never pay her honor enough. 

"A less perfectly poised woman 
could never have carried it through to 
success, for pitfalls there were many. 
But Margaret Boyd's selfless dignity 
supported her courage, and the door 
her gentle spirit opened will never 
again be closed." (E. W.) 

In the preparation of this history 
of Maggie Boyd and this tribute of 
her worth ,in addition to my own per- 
sonal knowledge and recollection, I 
have had invaluable assistance from 
several other sources. One of the 
most helpful and most highly prized 
of these was a paper prepared and 
read in the M. E. Church at Athens 
at the funeral of Kate Boyd by Edith 
Woodruff, class of '88, now Mrs. Ed- 
win D. Sayre of Athens. The selec- 
tions from her paper are placed with- 
in quotation marks and followed by 
the initials E. W. 

Rev. David H. Moore, D. D., retired 
Bishop of the M. E. Church, wrote me 
as follows in January, 1915: 

"Upon assuming the presidency of 
the Cincinnati Wesleyan College for 
Women in 1875, in nominating my 
faculties, I presented Miss Foyd as 
head of the Preparatory Department. 
She was confirmed and wrought with 
eminent satisfaction during the school 
years, 1875-6, 1876-7, 1877-8, when she 
was promoted to the College Faculty 
as Professor of Mathematics. In the 
latter capacity she served most satis- 
factorily through the year '78-9; when, 
owing, I think, to ill health, she de- 
clined re-election. 

"She was conscientious, capable, 
ambitious, untiring; a model teacher 
as she was a model woman." 

The authorities of her Alma Mater 
have given her a most appropriate 
monument upon the College Campus. 
This is Boyd Hall, which will accom- 
modate eighty-five girls. It was erect- 
ed in 1907 at a cost of $40,000. The 
reading on a tablet near the entrance 
is as follows: 




"Boyd Hall, named in Honor of 
Margaret Boyd, of the Class of 1873. 
The First Woman Graduate of O. U." 

She was worthy of the admiring and 
trustful affection lavished upon her 
in life, and of all the subsequent 
honor that has been and shall be hers. 
Her last pastor, the Rev. W. L. Slutz, 
D. D., has written the following fit- 
ting and well weighed words concern- 
ing her: 

"Her beautiful, unselfish life was a 
benediction to all who were in any 
way associated with her. Prudent, 
tireless, competent, well-poised, and 
ever vigilant, and, withal, most kind 
and gentle, were the adornments of 
her priceless life." * * * "The last 
few years were years of comparative 
feebleness, but the rising cloud of the 
uncertainty of life did not for a mo- 
ment disturb the quiet peace of her 
soul. Well she knew that the sor- 
row of separation should be succeeded 
by the joy of greeting friends, on the 
other side. She has heard His words, 
'They shall walk with Me in white, for 
they are worthy.' In the spotless 
purity of this life she now beholds 
the King in His Beauty." 

May this tribute help to project and 
perpetuate the sacred lessons of her 
gracious and resplendent life.

The Ohio University trustees met 
Tuesday morning and in an hour clean- 
ed up the business before them. The 
biggest item of the session was the 
employing of the faculty and all per- 
sons on the pay roll of the institution. 
There were few resignations, and the 
trustees were generous in Increasing 
salaries nearly all the way down the 
long list. 

Dean Chubb was given a leave of 
absence for the summer, and the fol- 
lowing honorary degrees were award- 

Master of Arts — Dr. Carl DeCasto 
Hoy, Columbus; Dr. Albert P. Lin- 
scott, Marion; Judge Roscoe D. Mauck 

LL. D. — Hon. Elam Fisher, Eaton. 

B. Ped. — John H. Beveridge, super- 
intendent of schools, Omaha, Neb.; 
Fred Kirkendall, superintendent of 
schools, Zanesville; Daniel C. Tabler, 
high school principal, Parkersburg. 

The resignations accepted were 
Prof. Moler, Miss Beadle, Miss Cun- 
ningham, Violet Patterson and Julia 
Baker. Leaves of absence were 
granted to Allen Carter. Miss Brison, 
C. O. Williamson and Edna Secrest. 

Prof. W. E. McVay is to head the 
new John Hancock High School at 
$2,000, and he will be assisted by 
Ingraham Stewart, of Wllliamstown, 
W. Va. Coach Banks was employed 
again at $1900. Miss Mary Connett 
of Athens, was employed to teach in 
the new high school at $900. Prank 
V. Whltehouse, now at Columbia Uni- 
versity, will teach Spanish at $1600. 
Maude Cryder, of Athens, will teach 
German in the place of Prof. Carter, 
and Olive Robens art in the place of 
Miss Brison. Mrs. Annie Morrison, 
of Athens, was made matron of the 
new dormitory, Lindley Hall. A large 
number of sludents were employed as 
part time assistants. William R. 
Cable and his wife will hereafter have 
charge of the registrar's office at a 
i combined salary of $2200. and Prof. 
Dunkle who has been registrar for so 
many years will hereafter be Pro- 
fessor of Greek. General increases 
: of $100 were granted all heads of de- 
I partments, while many other salaries 
were increased. 

It Is probable that there will be 
several other vacancies in the faculty 
when college begins next fall. Profs. 
Macklnnon, Jefferson and Skinner 
have applied for the second officers' 
training camp, and Dr. Douthitt will 
probably be in an army medical train- 
ing camp by that time, having made 
application.- — Dally Messenger.
